The fledgling imprint Soave is back from the depths with the reissue of Musci/Venoista obscure album from the mid 90s. Combining sounds of distant and historic cultures - Gregorian chant and field recordings of Orthodox monks praying on Mount Athos - looped with a mystical approach that resounds in a rich undulatory and dynamic minimalism.

Soave present a reissue of Roberto Musci, Giovanni Venosta, and Massimo Mariani's Losing The Orthodox Path, originally released in 1997. Color vinyl; edition of 300. "How does one describe such a supremely crafted tapestry of sound and composition when there is such a rich canvas of details to appreciate it? As a homage to ancient music, Musci, Venosta and Mariani blend a powerful undercurrent of otherwordly intrigue and mysticism throughout their structures, resulting in an emotionally engaging experience unlike any other CD recording I've encountered. Most of the real-time playing is placed alongside and distinctly from the computer world, creating both a stimulating, dynamic and crossover references. There is much originality to reward both close and repeat listens. This isn't jazz, nor improvised; in their words, Losing The Orthodox Path is an homage to ancient music, but through an electro-acoustic approach. Our jazz and/or rock souls do the rest." --Michael King
